Pad Thai Cucumber Salad

I used cucumber,  carrots, radishes, green peppers. You can use whatever you have available.  Zucchini and onion would be nice.

Pad Thai Cucumber Salad

Cut cucumber and assorted vegetable into “noodles” using a mandoline

Whatever won’t mandolin well, like green peppers, dice fine.

Just slather on dressing and serve.

Cucumber Salad

I am so busy freezing and canning.

I figured I might stop long enough to post this refreshing and simple salad.

Cucumber, Tomato and Feta Salad

2 medium cucumbers , peeled and chopped
2 medium tomato, chopped
1/2 small onion diced
1/4 cup feta, crumbled
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste

Just mix and enjoy. I like it room temperature.

Not sure when I’ll get back in the blogging swing since corn is coming in, along side tomato and green beans. I can not stop until I have it preserved or eaten. Oh the joys of vegetable gardening! 🙂
